Filemaker Google Calendar APIby Mike Phalen
FileMaker_GoogleCalendarAPI.fmp12 Hi Everyone, I’ve been working on accessing the Google Calendar API 3 thru Filemaker and put together this quick summary of what I’ve learned. It is all Filemaker programming, no other language skills required. This file contains scripts to invoke four Google Calendar functions: create calendar, create event, edit event and delete event. The scripts are not dependent on layouts, fields or custom functions and can be copied and pasted into your fm file. All parameters are entered in the script parameter when calling the API scripts. A parameter template is at the beginning of each API script. There are many more calendar functions that can easily be implemented using the same technique used here.
Most of the new Google API’s can be accessed directly using REST. I believe this allows Filemaker to directly access the Google mail, maps, translate, search and gDrive APIs! Although I haven’t tried them yet.
I have other calendar scripts that are not included in this file for syncing Google Calendar with Filemaker and other misc functions. If you need them let me know.
